Spreading the word, in case any of you have run into him.
If you have info, please contact Vitaly, not me (phone # below).
My son is missing since last Friday 11/27 evening. I actually have no idea where he went but he took all his bouldering climbing gear (pad, shoes, chalk) and some camping gear (sleeping bag and pad) so he might be around any climbing/bouldering area within a few hours of driving from San Francisco Bay Area where he lives and was seen the last time.
He especially likes Bishop. Maybe some of you or your friends were in Bishop last weekend and met him? His name is Artem, 18 years old, skinny, 5'10" tall, pretty good climber and boulder, driving dark blue Infiniti G20 license plate 5LLB914. Here is one of his recent pictures http://vitalchik.com/artem.jpg
If you saw him or his car please PM or call me 415-505-1684.
That's a lot of personal information to be posted on a public message forum; phone number / license plate, etc. You might want to scale it back and just suggest that someone PM you if they saw the guy. Just a thought...
yeah, maybe too much info but I'm just passing it along and seems as though, this might all be relevant to finding him . . . if I was in his dad's position I'd be looking at giving out as much info as I could.
Let's just hope the kid is sleeping off too much of the turkey . . .
